Change in-game font

Couldn't find a thread for this after searching.

 

One very minor tweak that I can suggest that would slightly increase the enjoyment of the game for most people, would be to change the font. In CBT1 we had a font that looked like this. Click to expand if the image is too small to see the font.

It feels lazy, it feels like an afterthought.

Although BDO isn't nearly as bad as this next example, here's a textbook example of lazy, afterthought font. It's from a game called Rappelz, you may have heard of it.

Absolutely disgusting.

Now, it was hard to find an example of a font that fit well with the game, but I took a screencap from a SWTOR video to show what I feel is the difference here. However you may feel about SWTOR, they picked a very well-fitting font for their game.

It looks like it fits. BDO's font just doesn't.

 

Now, you may think this is a waste of time to the developers to change the font. It probably is, since the font is adequate.

 

But do we want just adequate for our version of the game? Are we willing to settle for just adequate?

 

I didn't think so.

That would look great for the UI frames and such. Great suggestion. I feel like we can do much better than what we currently have.

I dont see whats wrong with bdos font. Making it any other font would just make it look like a gimmick. Its like asking the hundreds of companys from switching their font from helvetica to something that fits their "image". They use it because its the most neutral. It works.

I think it's lazy and uninspired. I think we can do better.

Should be able to change it yourself, actually.
Gotta go digging in them files. Maybe patch some stuff.
y'know. Bannable stuff.

+1 Agreed. Took just a little digging (The OP didn't tag his own thread), but I did find you 2 threads. One mirroring your own. :)
